2 Camp Lazlo Camp Lazlo Camp Lazlo is an American animated television series created by Joe Murray and produced by his company Joe Murray Productions with Cartoon Network Studios.

I never understood why people underrate both of Joe Murray's cartoons. They're both great in my opinion

I Rember loving this show because an elephant was a main character. Good old times. I loved growing up, but however it had the worst series finale I ever scene. Other then that it was still a good show

It was actually sorta good - Goatworlds

Camp Lazlo was awesome

This show was one of my favorites as a young one! It reminded me of a zanier Aristocats with amazing characters such as Waffle. God I love Waffle - Masochismismagic

This show was one of Nick's best shows and it needs to come back

Nickelodeon has announced reboots of Rugrats and Rocko's Modern Life in the form of comics (kind of like what they did with Invader Zim). Can this show be next?

This show was so funny and all of the characters were likeable. - ilovelife

This show made me so happy and me and my sister still quote "I cannot wink."

Not underrated. Not bad for sure but many people remember it exists so yeah. - PageEmperor

A serene cartoon that really deserves more credit (look at the creativity in it's characters) - Masochismismagic

I'm just going to say it I like this cartoon more than spongebob squarepants

7 Danny Phantom Danny Phantom Danny Phantom is an American animated series created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon. It was produced by Billionfold Studios and distributed in Canada by Nelvana, a Canadian animation company. The series follows a teenage boy who, after an accident with an unpredictable portal between the human world more.

This is an awesome show, the characters are complex and the storyline is original. Not to mention the animation is great and the comedy is hilarious. (Example: Tucker: "Ember isn't just music. She's an expression of my unique individuality! -camera shows everyone else in the school wearing Ember merchandise- Sam: Oh yeah... You're one of a kind! Every single one of you... /sarcasm)

This was a amazing show and a instant classic still remember the theme song

In my opinion, Danny Phantom is a greater show than Spongebob. It had relatable, three-dimensional characters, unique (and cocky) villains, story lines that put both drama, seriousness, and comedy...
And creating an interesting world called the Ghost Zone, this has a whole path wide open for it... if Nickelodeon would allow it to happen!

This is overrated

8 Dilbert

The Elebits of adult cartoons!

Get this higher than Back at the Barnyard and in the Top 5 next to Harvey Beaks!

I remember this from Sky One but sadly I forgot about it.

This was one of UPN's greatest shows! It's based off the 1989 comic of the same name. The show has a great voice cast, animation is acceptionally well, & I honesty like!

9 Beverly Hills Teens
10 Buzz Lightyear of Star Command Buzz Lightyear of Star Command

This show was awesome and it was hilarious how it was basically a spoof of Saturday morning Cartoons of the 80s

11 The Amazing World Of Gumball The Amazing World Of Gumball The Amazing World of Gumball is a British-Australian-German-American-Irish children's animated television series created by Ben Bocquelet for Cartoon Network.

Idiot said its bad burn in hell

Awful show

To all the ass who hate this show you. This cartoon is one of the best some of you whiners say otherwise this is one of the most creative shows in history the only reason you think it sucks is because your brain is to small that you can't comprehend the genius of it and must settle for stuff like teen titans go, modern SpongeBob, and family guy. So take your opinions and die with them. But seriously folks this is still a perfect show that gets a lot of disrespect. I guess we live in a time when people are afraid of something new and original. So in conclusion this is one of the best shows of all time and needs more respect from peop le. a nd to people like swampyfan who hate this show, you disgust me all

Not exactly underrated but I love this show - Masochismismagic

Did kids enjoy this stuff

How Did This Show Ever Get On The List? It Sucks So Hard Don't Believe Me? Look It Up On Google And See How Many People Hate This Disgraceful Cartoon.

This show actually isn't as bad as most people make it out to be, but I still don't really like it. Lenny, the guy who owns the store, is actually a pretty relatable character though

No one likes this show except for Nickelodeon

13 Kappa Mikey Kappa Mikey Kappa Mikey is an American animated sitcom created by Larry Schwarz. The show is Nicktoons Network's first original half-hour series, bought during the same period as other Animation Collective series such as Three Delivery and Speed Racer: The Next Generation, as well as Flash shows from other studios, more.

This show was so hilarious! It made fun of many popular anime such as Speed Racer, Dragon Ball, Sailor Moon, etc. But also pays great homage to them as well. The concept of having an American cartoon character in a Japanese anime world was so clever! Not to mention the voice of Gonard is Sean Schemmel! The voice of Goku and Lucario! What more could you want? Apart from that, the characters are funny and lovable, the stories can appeal to kids and sometimes even adults, what's else to say? This series should've lasted a lot longer and it's just sad that it got cancelled. Highly recommend you watch it on KissCartoon.

14 Star Wars: The Clone Wars Star Wars: The Clone Wars Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an American 3D CGI animated television series created by George Lucas and produced by Lucasfilm Animation with the division Lucasfilm Animation Singapore, Lucasfilm and CGCG Inc.

I love this show so much! Even though anakin seems mean to ahsoka.
Its like the only show I watch next to doctor who, and mysteries at the museum.
By the way I'm 10 using my moms email.

The entire Clone Wars merchandise are spearheaded by Buena Vista. - playstationfan66

If we're talking about the 2003 miniseries then, yes, underrated. if not...shoot oop mun - ALL_HAIL_LELOUCH

15 Little Bill Little Bill Little Bill is an American animated children's television series produced for Nick Jr. The stories are based on Bill Cosby's Little Bill book series, set in Philadelphia, and feature Bill Jr.

This show is actually a good choice if you are 5 years old

me too.

Black Cailou

16 Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

Sure, the animation isn't the best. But the comedy is hilarious. - TheStormBolt

Scooby doo is among my least favorite cartoons. Just so uninteresting, tedious, and boring. No jokes hit, every episode has the same ending, only occasionally thought-provoking, and forgettable. I only remember one character. People only like it because they liked it when they were younger, along with me but I had a small taste in cartoons. There are just so many better cartoons: adventure time, spongebob, teen titans, and countless others. I’d rate it a 6/10. I consider it the second most overrated cartoon of all time.

Not as good as it's predecessor but it has some memorable jokes from Daphne (Who is the comic relief in this show) all the voice actors from Inc. voice the characters in these, except for Velma. - MistyMay113

17 Spider Riders
18 Tom and Jerry Tales Tom and Jerry Tales

The 2014 is more underrated because of more hurts to Tom and Jerry is annoying as ever plus laughing at tom with jerry is not funny through (at least the laughing tracks are better in other sitcomes except some boring T.V. sitcomes) then the Season 2 is actually not bad...and improved overall and Jerry is not annoying as ever anymore but the best episode in season 1 when Tom beats the dog by doing evil stuff styles but the best episode in 2014 but still I hate the year 2014.

19 W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. W.I.T.C.H. is a French-Italian-American animated television series based on the Italian comic book series of the same name.

Oh Yeah, This Show is Awesome, It Got Things That Most Modern Cartoon Don't Have:Great Characters, Epic Storytelling, Nice Voice Acting, Amazing Characters ETC. Yet, This Show is Really Overlooked By My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (It is Still Great Modern Cartoon Through) - CaptainFalconGX4676

Love this underrated show.

20 Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

I like how it had an on going plot that developed with each episode.

People don't give this show a chance... you should check it out, both seasons are on Netflix at the moment. - MistyMay113

The most underrated Scooby Doo incarnation and by far one if the best with a damn good albeit odd villian to boot - Masochismismagic

21 Liberty's Kids Liberty's Kids

I loved the theme song

22 Spider-Man Unlimited
23 Robot and Monster Robot and Monster

This show was my childhood - Haumea

Overrated if you ask me. - Goatworlds

Far better than Sonic boom.

This Show Was Amazing! Why Did It Get Cancelled?! The Animation Was Great, The Humor Was Great, Marf Was Adorable, and Every Character was Likable - ChiefMudkip

27 Grojband Grojband Grojband is a Canadian animated series developed by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia, Ltd and created by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton. more.

Grojband was alright. It wasn't Spongebob amazing, but deserved more attention. - SneakedPrism

28 Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
29 Transformers Animated

I grew up watching this show and it was one of my favorite cartoons of the late 2000s. I used to get up at 6am and watch this on Cartoon Network before heading off to school. It's so sad no one seems to remember this show, because it was awesome and 10000000000 times better than the transformers movies. - Disneykid00

30 Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard Back at the Barnyard is a Nickelodeon computer-animated television series that is a spin-off from the 2006 film, Barnyard.

I loved this show when I was younger but looking back it's not as appealing to older audiences, but it's still a funny and enjoyable show in my eyes. - Disneykid00

I mean, It's not the best, but is better than other Nickelodeon abominations.
*flashbacks to Fred the Show, Fanboy and ChumChum, Planet Sheen, and Mr. Meaty*

How did this cartoon get so much hate? I thought it was hilarious! There is some really funny stuff in this show I'm really glad I saw, such as the pig segments. The plots I actually found to be enjoyable, and the CGI looks far superior compared to Fanboy & Chum Chum and Planet Sheen. It may have some errors, but I'm overall glad I saw it, and I look forward to watching it again someday. Definitely deserves a lot more attention in my opinion..

This cartoon needs more love, sure the plots and villains can use some work, but still can make me laugh

31 My Life As a Teenage Robot My Life As a Teenage Robot My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American animated science fantasy television series created by Rob Renzetti for Nickelodeon.

I believe the only reason why this show isn't appreciated as much is because Nickelodeon was too greedy because of the shows poor ratings. This show rocked! It had great humor, loveable characters, and an interesting premise. If you have the time to watch three seasons of a show that deserves more attention, watch My Life as a Teenage Robot. You won't regret it.

The art style is cute and I remember loving this show as a little kid. The animation isn't as great as some other shows but it's definitely classic.

I love this show! - Gangem

I loved the stylized 50s vision of the future animation, regular teen robot, Jenny and the nods to sci fi and horror. I miss this show - Masochismismagic

33 Loonatics Unleashed

Yes! This Show Is Totally Underrated. I Don't Know Why Everyone Hates It.

Awesome underrated show from the good days

NikBrusk you Mr. Enter is awesome. Lunatics unleashed is a shameless cash grab of the looney tunes, why there's even video proof of someone showing sketches of the characters to a boy, and he said it just made them look evil, you know a show sucks when a kid points out the flaws, of and hey people like rebeltaxi hate it too should we screw him too?

34 Class of 3000 Class of 3000

I mostly skipped over this cartoon when I was younger, but I have lately been watching some episodes and I'm really bummed I skipped over it so much as a kid, cause it's actually a great cartoon. It may not compare to other older Cartoon Network shows like Foster's or Billy & Mandy, but it's still really good. - Disneykid00

I don't get why people don't like this,I mean it has one of the most critically acclaimed musician of all time.

35 Chowder Chowder Chowder is an American animated television series created by C.H. Greenblatt for Cartoon Network. The series follows an aspiring young child named Chowder and his day-to-day adventures as an apprentice in Chef Mung Daal's catering company.

This Show Isn't Underrated.

36 Robotboy Robotboy

The robot is really cute, but once you piss it off, it becomes an absolute death machine. - IceFoxPlayz

Robotboy is so underrated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Childhood ;_; Probably 2nd best action cartoon after Teen Titans.


37 Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu

Most Underrated Cartoon od all time

Underrated as hell

This show has a great backstory and character development, it really deserves more.

Funny to admit, it’s actually quite good. An interesting, original story, good likeable characters, some good jokes. Definitely recommend it. It reminds me of adventure time with its story and jokes.

40 American Dragon: Jake Long American Dragon: Jake Long American Dragon: Jake Long is an American animated television series. It was produced by Walt Disney Television Animation and created by Jeff Goode.

Best show of my childhood. No really it was! I just thought it was just cool as a kid. I mean a dude that can turn into a dragon, now that’s interesting. Not only did it have tons of action, but it was also relatable at times which got me entertained. However, I’ve always felt that it was a bit forgotten. I barely see anyone bring it up and when it is brought up people are like ‘eh it’s just okay’ or ‘eh it used to be fine but became bad’.

I personally prefer the first season over the second one. Of course the second season wasn’t bad, like I said earlier many people didn’t like it but I personally thought it was fine. It’s just that I preferred, well all the character’s original designs to the redesigns. At first I was unsure about the dragon since I didn’t see any difference as a kid but now I’ve decided the buff dragon from season 1 had more personality.

Overall, I think this was an amazing show, both in terms of nostalgia and as the show ...more - PageEmperor

Thought I would hate this show and took a long time to give it a chance. I am glad I did as this turned out to be one of my favourite shows of all time. Great music and Wander is the most adorable orange spoon ever! - FloofyDoof

Actually a really good show. The visuals are nice, a lot of episodes have tons of humor, many likeable characters and an interesting concept. Up there amongst my favourite modern cartoons, I watch it every time I don't feel like watching my other favourites. - PageEmperor

Its still my Favorite Show and IT hot cancelled way to early

One of the better shows of Disney channel, one of my favorites at least, it's sad that it done now
